Air’s original motion picture soundtrack for The Virgin Suicides is essentially a standalone Air album unto itself, a worthy component of a superior discography. And in keeping with its classic status, the soundtrack is getting a massive multi-tiered reissue for its 15th anniversary. In addition to the original soundtrack album, the Virgin Suicides project contains tons of unreleased live recordings from the time period. One such treasure is this take on “Dirty Trip” recorded live on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with Nic Harcourt in January 2000. Descend into luxuriant, mystique-laden lounge pop below.
The Virgin Suicides reissue is out tomorrow, 6/16, on Warner/Parlophone. It will be available in two formats: The deluxe edition contains 2-CD set, while a Limited Edition Super Deluxe format includes colored vinyl, an exclusive vinyl EP, 2-CDs, a 16-page booklet featuring a new interview and liner notes by Thibaut Wychowanok, a film poster, a VIP laminate pass, plus a download card. The original soundtrack will also be available as a single LP on 180-gram vinyl.
Warner/Parlophone will also reissue five other Air albums on 180-gram vinyl tomorrow with original artwork, including the Premiers Symptômes EP (1997), Moon Safari (1998), 10,000 Hz Legend (2001), Talkie Walkie (2004), and Pocket Symphony (2007).
